This Flickr set features examples of letterhead on hotel stationery from the correspondence of David Goldstein. These letters were sent to Martha Moore Avery from lecture tour stops, ca. 1911-1916.
The Goldstein-Avery Papers include writings, correspondence, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, photographs and ephemera. Goldstein (1869-1958) and Martha Moore Avery (1851-1929) were former Socialists who converted to Catholicism in early 20th-century Boston. They were founders of the Catholic Truth Guild (1917) and Goldstein was founder of the Catholic Campaigners for Christ (1936). Avery actively supported Boston College as a member of the womens’ booster group Philomatheia. Goldstein and Avery were both affiliated with the Boston School for Political Economy and both were writers, lecturers and lay street preachers who promoted Catholicism and opposed Socialism and Communism through their work in Boston and throughout the United States.
